There are two fashions in complete: the QX100 and the QX10. As advised by the mannequin numbers, the QX100 is probably the most sturdy of the 2, and with that one, the costliest, it prices $ 500 and $ 250 respectively.
The QX100 is definitely the identical sensor and expertise because the Sony RX100 digital camera that Sony launched final 12 months. I’ve by no means used it, however the opinions are optimistic. Specs embrace a 20.2-megapixel 1-inch Exmor R sensor and a Carl Zeiss f / 1.eight lens. The outcomes must be greater high quality photographs with the blurred background so desired that not solely smartphones, but in addition remoted dots and shoots attempt to attain. I had hoped that the optical zoom could be round 10x, as in Samsung's Galaxy S4 Zoom, however I'll accept the three.6x. Unusually, Amazon's product web page signifies that the QX100 can file a Full HD video whereas, in keeping with Gizmodo, it is going to be restricted to 1440 × 1080 – one factor is for certain, and it’ll encode it in MP4 format.
